Arnold’s adaptation, which also stars Steve Evets and Oliver Milburn as Joseph and Mr Linton respectively, is dark and gritty with nature taking a large role alongside the two lovers. Of the film, Neil Young of the Hollywood Reporter writes; “Wuthering Heights shows how 21st Century cinema can — and should — go about boldly revitalizing even the most familiar literary properties”.
Oliver Lyttleton of Indiewire writes “Kaya Scodelario, perhaps the best-known face in the cast after starring in four seasons of British TV hit Skins performs a heart-wrenching revelation as Older Cathy.”
In The Telegraph, Anita Singh describes the film as “a raw and affecting adaptation that will bring a new audience to the Brontë story."
Wuthering Heights gets it British premiere at the 55th London Film Festival and is on general release later this year.
